Minimum Requirements for Windows Service Account
I am looking for the same answer. While the installaiton documentation does not include any special prerequisites, eOne KB articles such as KBA-01225-W3K3D5 indicate that the service account needs to be a local administrator. For a security conscious environment that can be considered high risk.
When running a SmartConnect map, getting an error that says "The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. To create the source, you need permission to real all event logs and to make sure that the new source name is unique. Inaccessible logs: Security"
This message means that the account assigned to the eConnect service does not have administrative rights on the local machine. To resolve this, do the following:
2. In the services window, find the "eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics 20XX Integration Service"
Go into computer management on the same machine, and add the user you wrote down to the local machines administrators group.
Then eConnect will be able to write to the event log. [/quote]
